How do you know if you clicked on a Facebook app that allows people to track your viewing by accident?
I do not think I did this, but from my reading I am starting to get paranoid

Oh..that's easy! Such a thing does not exist for Facebook, so you have nothing to worry about.

everything i have read says that if you have an app that you clicked on that allows access, people can. If so, how can I check if I have that app?

You can see what apps you have given access to your account by looking in Privacy Settings, scrolling to the bottom and clicking Edit Settings in Apps and Websites.

And to clarify my statement before, there is no "reliable" tracker for Facebook. Meaning there are (or have been) some tracker apps that you and the person you want to track have to give access to the app for it to work - and most people in their right-mind would not do that intentionally..

I am still confused, sorry. So person "sally", would have to request to me that I allow her to track my viewings? There would not be an app that would allow someone to track anyone viewed their profile?

Sally would have to install the app on her profile. You would then have to install the same app. There is no app that will let someone see who looks at their profile without the other person also installing the same app - basically giving their approval to be tracked.
